Unemployment has been one of Rahul Gandhi’s favourite issues that he invariably brings up in all interviews and rallies. With unemployment being at an all-time high and becoming much more of a glaring problem, it does make absolute sense for Rahul Gandhi to hammer on the issue repeatedly.
Another reason which totally justifies him picking on unemployment is that BJP promised job creating in it election manifesto but have yet not been able to deliver on their promise. On his superb trip to USA, speaking on unemployment he said,” I think the central reason why Mr Modi arose and to an extent why Mr Trump came, is the question of jobs in India and in the United States. There’s a large part of our populations that simply do not have jobs and cannot see a future. And, so they are feeling pain. And they have supported these types of leaders. I do not know Trump. I don’t go there. But, certainly our prime minister is not doing enough (in creating jobs). Currently, we are not producing enough jobs. 30,000 new youngsters are joining the job market every single day and yet the government is only creating 500 jobs a day. And this doesn’t include the massive pool of already unemployed youngsters.”
